“This fast-paced, engrossing read should appeal to teens and up while pushing them to grasp ominous possibilities associated with social networking, cellphones and such.

I was just in the USA again, at a convention held in Minneapolis College of Art and Design – a good little academic style con, with cosplay fun thrown in. I made a talk about ‘Ax and Gekiga: maturer style manga’, to a full house and a good reception – thank you all. and thanks […]
Another rave for Geary’s latest The Terrible Axe-Man of New Orleans, this time from the influential Booklist: “Geary’s archly antiquated drawing style is ideally suited for bringing bygone eras to vivid, convincing life.

“Speaking of great art, you can’t go wrong with Geary — his work displays a humor, style and class that make it instantly recognizable. This latest book adds an element of horror, though: It tells the compelling, bizarre story of a series of brutal murders in New Orleans that seem connected (but are they?). While […]
Calling it “Thoroughly enjoyable entertainment”, School Library Journal in their latest issue goes on: “The artwork is energetic with a rock-solid understanding of cartooning and kineticism … with an unusual protagonist and showcasing a quirky new voice in comics.” …Rock-solid understanding… and Brooke is all of maybe 22, fresh out of college? Oh, yeah. And […]
